Version:

Security-only update

Summary

Learn more about this security-only update, including improvements, any known issues, and how to get the update.

IMPORTANT On May 19, 2022, we released an out-of-band (OOB) update to address an issue that might cause machine certificate authentication failures on domain controllers. If you haven’t installed the May 19, 2022 or later releases, then installing this June 14, 2022 update will also address that issue. For more information, see the Before installing this update section in this article.

IMPORTANT Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2) has reached the end of mainstream support and are now in extended support. Starting in July 2020, there will no longer be optional, non-security releases (known as "C" releases) for this operating system. Operating systems in extended support have only cumulative monthly security updates (known as the "B" or Update Tuesday release).

Verify that you have installed the required updates in the How to get this update section before installing this update. 

Customers who have purchased the Extended Security Update (ESU) for on-premises versions of this OS must follow the procedures in KB4522133 to continue receiving security updates after extended support ended on January 14, 2020. For more information about ESU and which editions are supported, see KB4497181

Because ESU is available as a separate SKU for each of the years in which they are offered (2020, 2021, and 2022)—and because ESU can only be purchased in specific 12-month periods—you must purchase the third year of ESU coverage separately and activate a new key on each applicable device for your devices to continue receiving security updates in 2022.

If your organization did not purchase the third year of ESU coverage, you must purchase Year 1, Year 2, and Year 3 ESU for your applicable Windows Server 2008 SP2 devices before you install and activate the Year 3 MAK keys to receive updates. The steps to install, activate, and deploy ESUs are the same for first, second, and third year coverage. For more information, see Obtaining Extended Security Updates for eligible Windows devices for the Volume Licensing process and Purchasing Windows 7 ESUs as a Cloud Solution Provider for the CSP process. For embedded devices, contact your original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

For more information, see the ESU blog.

Improvements

This security-only update includes new improvements for the following issue:

  • Printing to a NUL port from a Low Integrity Level (LowIL) process application could cause printing failures.

For more information about the resolved security vulnerabilities, please refer to the new Security Update Guide website and the June 2022 Security Updates.

Known issues in this update

Symptom

Next step

After installing this update and restarting your device, you might receive the error, “Failure to configure Windows updates. Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer”, and the update might show as Failed in Update History.

This is expected in the following circumstances:

  • If you are installing this update on a device that is running an edition that is not supported for ESU. For a complete list of which editions are supported, see KB4497181.

  • If you do not have an ESU MAK add-on key installed and activated.

If you have purchased an ESU key and have encountered this issue, please verify you have applied all prerequisites and that your key is activated. For information on activation, please see this blog post. For information on the prerequisites, see the "How to get this update" section of this article.

Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.

Do one of the following:

  • Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege.

  • Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership.

We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

After installing this update, Windows devices might be unable to use the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. When attempting to use the hotspot feature, the host device might lose the connection to the Internet after a client device connects.

To mitigate the issue and restore Internet access on the host device, you can disable the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. For instructions, please see Use your Windows PC as a mobile hotspot.

We are presently investigating and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

After installing this update, Windows Servers which use the Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) might be unable to correctly direct Internet traffic. Devices which connect to the server might not connect to the Internet, and servers can lose connection to the Internet after a client device connects.

To temporarily workaround this issue, disable the NAT feature on the RRAS server. To do this, click to clear the "Enable NAT on this interface" check box on the NAT tab. For more information, see step 7 of the Enable and Configure NAT article on the Microsoft Docs website.

We are currently investigating and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

How to get this update

Before installing this update

For machine certificate authentication considerations, do one of the following:

  • Install this June 14, 2022 update on all intermediate or application servers that pass authentication certificates from authenticated clients to the domain controller (DC) first. Then install this update on all DC role computers.

  • Or, pre-populate CertificateMappingMethods to 0x1F as documented in the Registry key information section of KB5014754 on all DCs. Delete the CertificateMappingMethods registry setting only after the June 14, 2022 update has been installed on all intermediate or application servers and all DCs.

    Note Adding, modifying, or removing the CertificateMappingMethods registry setting does not require a device restart.

IMPORTANT Customers who have purchased the Extended Security Update (ESU) for on-premises versions of this OS must follow the procedures in KB4522133 to continue receiving security updates because extended support ended on January 14, 2020.

For more information on ESU and which editions are supported, see KB4497181.
